RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA) - Around 3 a.m. on Saturday, another garage fire on the 1000 block of 12th Street that Rapid City Fire Department called “suspicious” and said this incident could be related to recent fires in the area.

According to a press release from RCFD, early Saturday morning, firefighters were called to a structure fire in the alley behind the college nursing building.

When crews arrived, they found a single stall detached garage ablaze, and the fire was quickly extinguished.

The statement said the flames did not get inside the garage, but there was damage to the garage doors and siding.

A recycling bin was reportedly placed against the garage and the statement said it appears something was put inside of the bin that started the fire.
